As of fall 2016, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and University of Glasgow hope to finalize a new a bi-lateral study abroad and exchange agreement. The agreement will allow UWEC students to study abroad on exchange (which means you pay UWEC tuition while abroad) or as a visiting study abroad (which means you will pay Univesity of Glasgow non-resident fees). The number of exchange spaces will vary per year depending on the number of incoming University of Glasgow students.
As an exchange or visiting student, you will be allowed to take course work across the University of Glasgow curriculum provided that you have adequate pre-requisite knowledge. You will take courses with other U of Glasgow students and live in university accommodation.
If you are looking for a taste of big city living, the University of Glasgow may be the place for you. One of the oldest and most prestigious research universities in the UK, it is also one of the largest, with a student population approaching 20,000. Complete details are at http://www.gla.ac.uk/.

The University of Glasgow is very international. Every class I had, every event I went to, every time I walked down my dorm hallways, I would run into people from all over the world. It is also ranked in the top 30 schools in Europe, and all the professors I had were very approachable and extremely knowledgeable. Glasgow itself is a vibrant city. It's not huge, but it's big enough to have all sorts of stuff going on, while being very easy to get around on foot or by public transport.-Spencer
I learned a lot about Scottish culture and in doing so discovered many aspect of U.S. culture that I had never considered. – Jessica, Spring 2013
